"The birth of our first son"

About: Forth Valley Royal Hospital / Maternity unit

(as the patient),

I was under the care of the Tulip Team based at Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert.

From my first booking-in appointment to the delivery of my son, the standard of care and support I received was exceptional. As a new mum it was reassuring to see the same faces at my antenatal appointments and classes. The entire process was excellent and the birth and follow-up appointments at home were extremely calm and reassuring.

I cannot thank the ladies of the Tulip Team and the staff in Wards 7 and 8 enough for the care and attention they showed to me, my husband and our gorgeous new son.
